GROSS hair situation...

Last week, I was combing out my hair before hopping in the shower. My scalp was KILLING me, so I asked my husband to come in and look at the top of my head at my scalp and see if I had a scratch or eczema or something. Lo and behold, it was...

A zit! Isn't that icky? I had never had such things happen before, but I had a horrible blemish on the top of my head. Has that happened to anyone else before? My hair has been pretty troublesome lately. I had to sulfate wash this week, and I may have to do it again. My hair has been getting really weighed down, and this pimply scalp isn't helping matters.
:batman: 2b/cFi, low density, normal porosity, high elasticity

: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle
: Suave Naturals (whatever scent I have on hand)
: Paul Mitchell Round Trip, Tresemme Climate Control Finishing Spray

I'm a hair minimalist: the less time I spend on my hair, the better.

    It actually happens to me all the time. I have to really pay attention to cleaning my scalp with a low poo occasionally (or ACV) to keep it from happening from the rich products I use. Granted, I'm acne prone. But you have to remember that your scalp is just your skin. The pores on it can get clogged too.

    It may be due to the products you are using. When I used CK and Paul Mitchell LI conditioners, I used to get zits alone my hair line all the time. I also got the odd one in my hair, particularly on the back of my head for some reason.

    When I stopped using CK and PM conditioners and LI's, I never had a problem after that.
    Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
    ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
    Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
